About the "Self Portrait" Series: The "Self Portrait" series has been an eight-year running project resulting in recent solo and group exhibitions both internationally and in New York. My next piece involves the rental of a live animal and trainer. This image will be the center piece for my next exhibited body of work in late 2010. What I need: The $1,620 would cover what is needed to rent the animal and trainer. This is the the largest expense for the shoot that requires your contributions. What you'll receive: Each person who contributes will receive a personal thank you in the mail with a small print of the image from the project's final piece and additional rewards depending on their donation. From $1 to the entire shebang, everyone will receive something for their support. In my next exhibit in New York I will also place the names of all who contributed in the show's program. And the grand prize: For anyone willing to front the entire amount of $1,620 (this applies to residents in the greater NY area, or for anyone who can make their way to the shoot in upstate New York) I will invite them out to the location to be photographed with the live animal. Your support is absolutely appreciated. About this piece: This past Winter I experienced a turbulent point in my life that landed me in and out of my own sanity. During that time I created what I could to help me cope with my grief, abandonment, and often times unending guilt. This image will be the final piece that embodies the experiences of that time and the aftermath. In addition to being one of the largest productions on this specific project to date, this next image will serve as the centerpiece in my upcoming collection of work that I plan to exhibit later in the year.
